What a big girl!!!!

I made one of the best purchases of my life on Monday at Walmart! It seems like quite a bold statement, but it's very true. I paid $9.97 for some life jacket/swim suit combo thing-y for Cassidee to wear in the pool. I won't lie---I thought I'd try it out on her and save the receipt. If she hated it or it didn't work for her I was going to just take it back. SHE LOVES IT! She was saying "mommy, let go" after about 30 seconds. She loves the freedom of swimming the entire pool by herself and quickly figured out how to kick her arms and legs to get herself places!

So, if you have a moment, here are two videos. We took her to Jeremy's parents house so she could show daddy how she can swim. She loves playing in the hot tub and calling it the baby pool, so the first video is of her swimming back and forth in it. If you can't understand her talking in the video, she is saying, "swimmy, swimmy, swimmy" in a sing-songy voice. We are still teaching her to keep her mouth closed in the pool! :)

My brave little girl is also fearless when it comes to wearing this thing and has literally almost just jumped in before anyone was ready to catch her. Here she is, jumping off the hot tub into the big pool and swimming to daddy!

Coming soon: Cassidee very first day of "school" pictures

AND.....

A huge post dedicated to my big girl Cassidee for completing her very first full day in big girl panties with no accidents. (We even went on car rides, out to supper, and to church.....no accidents!)

Hi! You don't know me, I found your blog off of Jennifer Iman's. I love your polka dot background and cute picture up top. Can you please tell me how you did that or where you found it? I would really appreciate it!
Thanks so much!
